HARD BODIES SHINE IN THE 2015 NBBC

Over 40 competitors came in bronze and only a few left in gold. The 2015 National Body Building Championships rocked the Leo Palace resort like always during their annual event, even though a traffic accident forced many to go through Pulanta to get to the resort.

Over 40 competitors came in bronze and only a few left in gold.

The 2015 National Body Building Championships rocked the Leo Palace resort like always during their annual event, even though a traffic accident forced many to go through Pulanta to get to the resort.

Stealing the show on the evening was Bikini Overall winner Rhea Macaluso, Guam’s avid 5k top finisher. This was Macaluso’s first year competing and her loud fanbase made it an event worth remembering.

It was also a big night for Dan Munoz, taking top honors as the male overall finisher along with Kelly Burger in the women’s.
